Clinical, neuroanatomic, neurobehavioral, and functional brain-imaging studies suggest a role for the cerebellum in cognitive functions, including attention. However, the cerebellum has not been systematically studied in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We quantified the cerebellar and vermal volumes, and the midsagittal areas of three vermal regions, from MRIs of 46 right-handed boys with ADHD and 47 matched healthy controls. Vermal volume was significantly less in the boys… Expand
Brain development and ADHD.
TLDR
The ultimate goal of this research is to determine the underlying neurophysiology of ADHD and how specific phenotypes may be related to alterations in brain structure. Expand
Evaluation of Cerebellar Size in Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
The finding of abnormal inferior posterior vermal size suggests that dysfunction within this region of the cerebellum may underlie clinical deficits seen in individuals with ADHD. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging correlates of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in children.
TLDR
In the ADHD group but not in the control group, greater right superior prefrontal volume predicted poorer performance on a test of sustained attention, and patterns of brain abnormality did not differ in male and female children with ADHD. Expand
Neuroanatomical and neuropsychological correlates of the cerebellum in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder--combined type.
TLDR
Regression analyses indicated that a significant amount of the variance in parent-reported Behavior Assessment System for Children, Second Edition, Hyperactivity and Attention and Conners Restless/Impulsive ratings was explained by volume of the posterior inferior vermis. Expand
H¹-MR-spectroscopy of cerebellum in adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
This work finds the first evidence for neurochemical alterations in cerebellar neurochemistry in adult ADHD, and relates well to recent hypotheses that the cerebellum might control mental activities by internal models. Expand

TLDR
This review focuses on magnetic resonance imaging studies of the brain anatomy of ADHD, which found that ADHD is associated with a statistically significant 3% to 4% global reduction in brain volume in both boys and girls, and these differences continued throughout childhood and adolescence. Expand
Smaller prefrontal and premotor volumes in boys with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
Findings suggest that ADHD is associated with decreased frontal lobe gray and white matter volumes, suggesting that the clinical picture of ADHD encompasses dysfunctions attributable to anomalous development of both premotor and prefrontal cortices. Expand
The cerebellum and motor dysfunction in neuropsychiatric disorders
TLDR
This review finds evidence of motor dysfunction associated with neuropsychiatrie disorders consistent with disruption of cerebellar motor function in autism, schizophrenia and dyslexia, but it is cautioned that the restricted set of motor symptoms does not suggest global Cerebellar dysfunction. Expand
Towards Conceptualizing a Neural Systems-Based Anatomy of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
Characterizing these neural systems using neuroimaging could be critical for the description of structural endophenotypes, and may provide the capability of in vivo categorization and correlation with behavior and genes. Expand
Anatomical and functional brain imaging in adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)—A neurological view
TLDR
The core findings in ADHD imaging are alterations in the architecture and function of prefrontal cortex and cerebellum, and dysfunction of basal ganglia is a consistent finding in childhood and adulthood ADHD. Expand

Quantitative morphology of the corpus callosum in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
Two anterior regions, the rostrum and the rostral body, were found to have significantly smaller areas in the ADHD group, supporting theories of abnormal frontal lobe development and function in ADHD. Expand
Attention Deficit- Hyperactivity Disorder and Asymmetry of the Caudate Nucleus
TLDR
Results suggest that normal (L > R) morphologic asymmetry in the region of the caudate nucleus may be related to asymmetries observed in neurotransmitter systems implicated in ADHD. Expand
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and the frontal lobe syndrome
TLDR
The differential performance of ADHDs on tasks sensitive to FL and temporal lobe dysfunction supports the hypothesis that ADHD deficits are analogous to FL dysfunction and demonstrates that the children's deficits do not reflect generalized cognitive impairment. Expand
Frontal lobe functions in attention deficit disorder with and without hyperactivity: A review and research report
TLDR
While both types of ADD share some apparent similarities in deficits on a few frontal lobe tests in this study, the totality of existing findings suggests an additional problem with perceptual-motor speed and processing in the ADD/-H group. Expand
Schizophrenia and cognitive dysmetria: a positron-emission tomography study of dysfunctional prefrontal-thalamic-cerebellar circuitry.
TLDR
Results support a role for the cerebellum in cognitive functions and suggest that patients with schizophrenia may suffer from a "cognitive dysmetria" due to dysfunctional prefrontal-thalamic-cerebellar circuitry. Expand

TLDR
It is revealed that EF deficits are consistently found in both ADHD and autism but not in CD (without ADHD) or in TS, and both the severity and profile of EF deficits appears to differ across ADHD and Autism. Expand
Cognitive planning deficit in patients with cerebellar atrophy
TLDR
Neither age, sex, education level, severity of dementia, word fluency, response time, memory, nor visuomotor procedural learning predicted CA or CCA performance, but a deficit in cognitive planning suggests a functional link between the cerebellum, basal ganglia, and the frontal lobe concerning specific cognitive processes. Expand
Frontal lobe disinhibition in attention deficit disorder
TLDR
Comparison of the neuropsychological performances of ADD children and matched controls revealed a relatively circumscribed pattern of deficits on tests presumed to measure frontal lobe inhibitory control, suggesting a possible maturational lag in frontal lobe functioning among ADD subjects. Expand
Quantitative morphology of the cerebellum and fourth ventricle in childhood-onset schizophrenia.
TLDR
Findings are consistent with observations of small vermal size in adult schizophrenia and provide further support for abnormal cerebellar function in childhood- and adult-onset schizophrenia. Expand
Corpus callosum morphology in children with Tourette syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The findings suggest that the area of the CC is larger in children with TS, and that this difference is independent of age, handedness, intracranial area, and the diagnosis of ADHD. Expand
